Student Success & Enrollment Management

Student Success & Enrollment Management provides comprehensive services to support student learning outside the classroom.

It starts with admitting students who view FGCU as their first choice, followed by creating a strong sense of belonging for students so they can connect immediately to campus through vibrant student life programs. Our outstanding academic advising helps students connect with their major quickly where a strong emphasis in experiential learning complements classroom instruction. Support services offered through many offices helps students persist and ultimately graduate in a timely manner.

Student Success is at the core of FGCU and our strong outcomes speak for themselves.
